Wow, this was quite a lot of fun! Do you have any plans to release the rom, like your other releases? I'd love to throw this on my actual console :D

Thanks man! A digital download or the cartridge is already avalable at Incube8 Games.

Great game.  I love the trees and bushes that look like they came out of Links Awakening.  Great music as well.  Thank you for creating this.

Thanks! Yes, some of the graphics are inspired by Zelda.

Fun game! Is there a downloadable rom for real hardware?

Hi, yes a ROM and cartridge will be available soon from Incube8 Games.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know

Very cool game, really feels like something you'd play as a kid

Thanks for your great feedback!

What an awesome game! Great fun and well made.

Wo bekommt den ne rom für den game boy her ?

Gunship wird es demnächst bei Incube8 Games geben.

also gibts das nirgends als Download zubekommen?

Aktuell leider nicht. Es wird aber einen Download auf Incube8 Games geben.

¿final version?

Yes, its the final version.

Nice!  Well made, and fun.  It would be really amazing if you could destroy stuff like the trees and truck.  Also, leaving bullet holes in the ground would be great.  Even if it doesn't contribute to the gameplay in any logical way, little "extras" like that can make a big difference in the sense of interaction.

I totally agree with you but the Gameboy has its limitations and I simply run out of VRAM.

Okay, interesting!  So you are actually using the Gameboy limitations.

Maybe you have missed this is a real Gameboy game and it also runs on real hardware. I tested it on my Gameboy Color and Gameboy Pocket.

I totally missed that :)  Thanks for clarifying.  Playing on a browser made me assume it was just emulating the look of a gameboy game.

What a good game, the music has an air of battle it fits very well!
It would be perfect if your games could save the highest scores.

Thanks! Storing the high score is no big deal. For the Incube8 Games Genesis release I added a store function for the high score. This required however a cart with battery.

I would really appreciate a new version that saves scores, since I have a flashcart with battery, that's why I mentioned it haha

I watched all your games and huge congratulations. if you had worked with these when the gameboy was in his heroic age, you would be very famous now. Great works!

Thank you! Hope you enjoy the game.

Game rated & downloaded. I remember watching this game on twitter. You should have keep it in the vault for a jam or for a commecial release, it would have been an instant win. The game is good.

Thanks. Its not my interest to make a lot of money but a release is still possible.

Your games, fantastic as always!
Thanks for making it available!
